    Interview: Oct 30th, 2012

    Lance Alvein

    Is Shadows of Silence a cosmere story?

    BRANDON SANDERSON (paraphrased)

    It is cosmere, but takes place on an unimportant side planet that doesn't have anything interesting going on there. Hoid is not in the story.

    Footnote

    The story's correct name is Silence For Shadows in the Forests of Hell. In addition to that Peter is unsure whether or not Hoid makes a brief appearance.

    Interview: Jan 28th, 2014

    Brandon Sanderson

    Shadows for Silence

    This year, I have a few works that are eligible. The first I'd draw your attention to is "Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell," my story in the anthology Dangerous Women, edited by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois. I think this is my strongest short fiction piece of the year, and it is eligible in the novella category.

    As I did last year with The Emperor's Soul, I will send an electronic copy of "Shadows for Silence" to anyone who is eligible to vote or nominate for either the Hugos or the Nebula Awards. So if you had a membership for last year's Worldcon, or if you're planning to attend this year, please drop me an email at ebooks@brandonsanderson.com requesting an ebook of "Shadows for Silence" and saying which Worldcon you're a member of (or saying you're an active SFWA member), and we'll respond with a copy of the story.

    Interview: Oct 14th, 2013

    Question

    Is Hoid in Shadows for Silence?

    Brandon Sanderson

    He is not. I intentionally didn't put him in... I wanted to indicate that he goes where there is an important reason for him to be there rather than just being a cameo in every story.

    Shadows for Silence - where does it fall in the overall cosmere timeline, in relation to the other books?

    Brandon Sanderson

    [Paraphrased]In the latter half of things, but before the Stormlight Archive.

    Interview: Apr 16th, 2014

    Question

    Shadows for Silence, cosmere timeline, where does it fall with the rest of the books.

    Brandon Sanderson

    It is middle cosmere, a little on the late side but not-- It is pre-Stormlight Archive, so yeah.

    Interview: Jan 17th, 2015

    Question

    I actually have a few questions. I figure most of them will be RAFO, but I might as well try. In [Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell], that one? The Evil that destroyed the Homeland, was that Odium [killing?] a Shard? Or was that someone else-

    Brandon Sanderson

    RAFO

    Interview: Jan 17th, 2015

    Question

    I have a final question then, is there a Hoid cameo in Shadows for Silence?

    Brandon Sanderson

    I intentionally didnít put one in, because I didnít- couldn't come- there was no reason for him to be there, and I didnít want to be doing it just to do it, if that makes sense, like, the Cosmere isnít just a bunch of cameos, it is a story within itself.

    Interview: Dec 6th, 2016

    Question

    I noticed a very similar fire-starting tool in both Sixth of the Dusk and Forests of Hell [Shadows for Silence]. Two levers you push together and they spark.

    Brandon Sanderson

    I did intend there to be a connection there but it is not a connection that is supposed to be super meaningful. Just that somebody figured something out, and Sixth of the Dusk is many years later. We have them in our world too. This technology has gotten around because the Ones Above have started visiting. I donít think theyíre of a technology level that they couldnít have discovered it on their own, so itís not supposed to be some big reveal.
